Ringing at Kelmarsh


Today a period of bird ringing took place at Kelmarsh Hall in slightly milder conditions of late. A total of 98 birds were captured which included plenty of typical woodland birds, perhaps highlighted by a male Sparrowhawk, two Great Spotted Woodpeckers, three Nuthatch and a sprightly male Goldcrest. A pair of Raven were very vocal.

This afternoon a wander around in Sunderland Wood on the Kelmarsh Estate provided a selection of common woodland birds including three Woodcock.
